Weather in L.A. has been all over the place lately, even over the course of 24 hours, with chilly mornings that turn into ninety-degree days, then dive back into gloomy, or worse, muggy evenings. My go-to wardrobe constant through the less-than-predictable weather has been flowy long-sleeved dresses. It's such a simple solution, but I've found that a longer dress (a midi length or longer, preferably) with long sleeves provides just enough warmth for the cool mornings, yet is breathable enough for the heat of the day. Throw on a pair of kitten heels or sneakers with a cute straw bag over any of these dresses and you're good to go.
